“It’s just a game,” is a common phrase tossed around when speaking of sports. But, it’s more than that. Basketball, tennis, swimming— you name it. Every sport imaginable is part of a long-lasting tradition of being a community. Many Sunday afternoons are spent lounging on the couch and shouting with your friends for your favorite football team. Fathers and sons bond over America’s most popular sport. Sports bring happiness and a sense of unity. People of all race, age, gender, and religion can settle their differences for one game. Sports allow us to be passionate. Scoring the winning goal in a soccer match or winning that last point in a badminton match inspires us to do better. People are able to build their confidence in an activity that they enjoy.

Good sportsmanship enables us to get along with more people. It helps us at a job or in a classroom and prepares us to function in a competitive society. Sports teach us to win and lose and be able to accept both circumstances. We show empathy towards those who lose and excitement for those who win. We laugh and cry together and strengthen our friendships. “Teamwork makes the dream work,” is a common saying used regarding sports and honestly there’s not much more to it.
